The Gabrielle Dinsmore Heart & Hope Fund is thrilled to offer Connecticut children living with a congenital heart defect an opportunity to experience Gabrielle’s Heart Camp.  Gabrielle’s Heart Camp CT is made possible through a collaboration with Dr. Alan Friedman, Dr. Robert Elder, and the Department of Pediatric Cardiology at Yale-New Haven’s Children’s Hospital.

Gabrielle’s Heart Camp CT is an amazing opportunity for kids to meet others with heart conditions and have a traditional camp experience under the supervision of pediatric cardiologists, pediatric nurses, and experienced camp staff.

The program combines traditional camp activities mixed with educational activities about heart health, nutrition, congenital heart disease, and self-care.
